Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, with Alhaji Aliko Dangote; and Dr. Frank Udemba Jacobs during the Inauguration of the Nigeria Industrial Policy and Competitiveness Advisory Council, State House, 30th May 2017.
During the Inauguration of the Nigeria Industrial Policy and Competitiveness Advisory Council on May 30, Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote were seen giving Acting President Yemi Osinbajo a close look that seemed to be pregnant with meaning.
Mr. Dangote is a businessman from the north while Mr. Osinbajo is a lawyer turned politician from the south. President Muhammadu Buhari is from the north and is currently undergoing treatment in the United Kingdom with some people already alleging that he should hand power over to Mr. Osinbajo to move Nigeria forward.
There have been speculations that the northern cabal does not want to hand power over should anything happen to their brother and son in hospital in London. But, the look Mr. Dangote gave Mr. Osinbajo could be interpreted that businessmen are ready to work with whoever is in power.
